There is a square rubber plug on the backside of the brake plate. jack up the rear of the car and locate this plug above the axle. Pull out the plug and you can see the adjustment star in the opening. Use a flathead screwdriver to turn the star and run the shoes in or out. Good luck.

Adjust Dodge truck brakes?

adjust isn't really the right word here. if the pedal is soft and the brakes suck, and you have to push it real hard to get any reaction out of the thing, pushing harder may not be the solution. Check the brake fluid reservoir , make sure its full. regardless if it is or not you should bleed the brakes , and you may need new pads. if the brake fluid is real empty you must bleed the brakes.

How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 1999 Dodge Caravan?

Are the rear disc brakes or rear drum brakes? If they are disc brakes, ther is no adjustment. If they are drum brakes, you adjust them by backing up and hitting the brakes. Do it in an empty parking lot. If they are drum style brakes, simply put the van in reverse, and accelerate backwards about 10 feet, and jam on the brakes.. repeat a few times and the auto-adjusters will tension the shoes against the drum properly accounting for the pads thickness, or lack thereof. If they are disc brakes, you have no capability to adjust them without removing the wheels, the calipers, and "shimming" the pads so they are thicker inside the caliper. If your pads are to thick, then you have the wrong pads, and if they are to thin to shim out, and safely stay inside the caliper, then yours pads are worn and needing replacement.
